Today' Prompt is FREE VERSE on ROSES

Free verse is a form of poetry that refrains from meter patterns, rhyme, or any other musical pattern. However I lean toward rhyming, so you can do it either way.  Today the subject is ROSES,  write it how you feel it...OURS IS...

How to trim a rose

Roses need trimming
at least once a year
but trimming them proper
is a job that some fear

You need a pair of gloves
or your hands will get a prick
and a pair of sharp cutters
to make your cutting quick

Remove the lower leaves
so you can see the node
take out all the deadwood
it helps the roses grow

outward facing nodes
are the best to let in air
so a slanted cut above them
will bring new growth next year

The shoots from this year
that came from last years trim
can be cut below the  y
for new growth once again

That is all there is to it, now
your knowledge is much deeper
but an easier way by far
is to get a grounds keeper !

Hire me, I'll do it !!!
